Real Weddings – Amy’s Wedding

The very end of February marked Amy’s wedding, who was getting married at Kings Weston House. I went along to her house to get Amy and her mum ready.

Amy had quite short hair but wanted a low messy bun, this style is great as you can make it look like there is a lot more hair than there actually is. I curled the hair to start, I put volume through the top using Batiste Plumping powder and back combing, then at the back I put the hair into three small ponytail and then used the curls to pin sections creating a messy bun.

For the make up, Amy wanted a fairly classic winged liner and bold lip combo so I defined the eyes using a light pinky brown in the socket and a black gel liner, she had amazingly long lashes so no falsies were needed! I used a mix of Arbonnes CC Cream and MAC Face and Body to create a soft fresh looking base and a soft pink blush. For the lips I used Diva, a plum tone from MAC.

I am sure most bridal make up artist will know your job never stops with the final application of lippy, you might end up doing up dresses, pinning button holes tying cravats, the list goes on. The final hour of a wedding morning flies by and on the morning of Amy’s wedding I was happy to help out with little bits an pieces to take some of the stress away!

The sun was shining for Amy so I can imagine their day was amazing!

Congratulations Amy, and thank you for having me as part of your day.

Stay Gorgeous

Grace xoxo
